Notes for Americo Alfredo Carlo Faiella:
Americo's Birth Record:
Nato Amerigo Alfredo Carlo Nate il 7 Aprile 1897 e Registrato il 14 Aprile; Nato a bello
Orisonte in Via Sabara Stato in Minas Garnes, Brasilia.

The 1920 Census shows Americo Faiella, living at 15 Newton St., Mansfield, Mass. with
his LoDico in-laws: Americo - son-in-law - 23, b. in Brazil, working as a riveter in a
shipyard.


Notes for Maria (Mary) Margherita Elena LoDico:
Maria (Mary) married Americo Faiella and lived at 15 Newton St., Mansfield, Mass. with
Americo at her father Ignazio's house according to the 1920 census.

My Aunt Mary once told me of the story of her arrival at Ellis Island as a child of 10. She
recalled being separated along with her sister Giovanna (Jenny) from her mother
Francesca and baby brother Vincenzo by a doctor. They both had eye infections. She
recalled every morning the doctor would take her to the window and reach in his lab coat
for a small green stone. He would then rub it across her eye. This was very painful and
made her cry. One day while at lunch, she spotted her mother across the crowded hall. The
family was finally reunited.

Years later, while watching a special show on Ellis Island, they spoke of an common eye
infection by emigrating Italians. Called 'Mediterranean Eye' or Trachoma, a doctor would
treat the encrustation around the eye by rubbing a small jade colored bar of medicine
(copper based] on the eye. After a few weeks the infection was reduced and emigration was
allowed.

                    Notes for Rodolfo Calimero Pietro Antonio Carmino Faiella:
                    My Uncle Rodolfo (Rudy) Faiella was a professional wrestler in the
                    1920s. He was known as 'The Whirlwind'. The stories told by his
                    brother Americo and sons Alfred and Luigi spoke of a man of great
                    strength. Once he got a grip on his opponent, it was all over.

                    As young men, Americo and Rodolfo would travel from town to town
                    giving wrestling demonstrations and challenging the Italian men to
                    matches for money. Rodolfo rarely lost.

                    As one story goes, while standing in a railroad yard, Rodolfo and
                    Americo were discussing a possible match with a group of men.
                    Rodolfo looked down at a cast iron train rail and said he could lift it
                    completely off the ground all by himself.

                                               3
             Everyone looked at the rail. It was a massive ' I ' beam about 30 feet
             long. A few men tried to lift up one end and could barely get it a few
             inches off the ground. The bets were placed.

             Rodolfo grabbed one end and hoisted over his shoulder. He walked
             down the rail to the center and lifted it off the ground in one quick
             move.

             two older sisters. Both sisters had married two Faiella brothers. My
             Aunt Jenny was another great cook. Her home-made bread, like her
             older sister Angelina was very traditionally Sicilian.

   30. Ignazio LoDico, born 22 Aug 1862 in Bompietro, Sicily; died 25 Mar 1922 in
Mansfield, Mass.. He was the son of 60. Francesco Paolo LoDico and 61. Salvatora
Miserendino. He married 31. Francesca (Paula) Barbara Restivo 12 Sep 1896 in

   31. Francesca (Paula) Barbara Restivo, born 06 Jun 1869 in Villalba, Sicily; died 11
Jan 1952 in Quincy, Mass.. She was the daughter of 62. Carmelo Restivo and 63.
Arcangela Ristagno.

Notes for Ignazio LoDico:
My father's only recollection of his father, my grandfather Ignazio, was that of a child
around age 5 or 6. Ignazio died when my father was 7. My dad recalled that Ignazio
would come home late from working in his barber shop off Pleasant St. in Mansfield,
Mass., and empty his pockets full of change in his top dresser drawer. As a small boy, my
father would sneak in the bedroom and go through the drawer and take a few coins. He
said he never was caught.

My Uncle Americo Faiella, husband of Mary LoDico, recalled the time he approached
Ignazio to ask for the hand of Mary and his blessing. Americo said Ignazio "called me
down", referring to the fact that Ignazio thought it was time Americo, then a young man
of 22, should begin to settle down and think of his future and how to act properly as a
'man' about to be married. Americo said Ignazio gave him cause to think and do the
right thing.

My Aunt Angelina had the best recollection of her father Ignazio and the family's last
days in Marianopoli. She was around 14 at the time. She recalls her older brother Frank
had a bird and he made a cage for it. Frank was good with his hands. He raised the bird
until one day the cat killed it. Saddened by this, Ignazio told him, "Get another bird".

In 1906, the family would often hold a dance with supper in Marianopoli. The family
played a few instruments including the mandolin, guitar, and violin. Two rich kids came
by and began to cause trouble so Ignazio kicked them out. When Frank left his music
lessons, they were waiting for him. They pulled out their guns and beat him up. The left
him at the doorstep at 4 o'clock in the morning. The doctor reported the beating to the
police and one kid, Salvatore Marci was sent to jail. When he got out of jail, Francesca
Paola was worried, so Frank left for America (Pennsylvania). In 1907, September,
Francesca was still worried so Ignazio went to America for a second time. Then the
others followed.

Children of Ignazio LoDico and Francesca Restivo are:
                i. Salvatore LoDico, born 14 Nov 1884 in Marianopoli, Sicily; died 14
                   Jun 1885 in Marianopoli, Sicily.
               ii. Francesco (Frank) LoDico, born 02 Jun 1886 in Marianopoli, Sicily;
                   died 1948 in Mansfield, Mass; married (1) Catherine Lillian Cartwright
                   Lanergan; born 03 Aug 1902 in Boston, Mass.; died 21 Sep 1973 in
                   Attleboro, Mass.; married (2) Myatto UNKNOWN; born 1902.

                    Notes for Francesco (Frank) LoDico:
                    1907 - Francesco Ignazio LoDico (21), eldest son of Ignazio and
                    Francesca Paola LoDico has his life threatened over a girl. Francesca,
                    fearing the worst for her son, sends him to the United States. He boards
                    the Sannio, out of Palermo and arrives at Ellis Island on September 26,
                    1907. Francesco travels to Syracuse / Buffalo, NY to live with the
                    Restivo or Ristagno family.

                    He married the former Catherine Lillian Cartwright Lanergan and
                    they had 4 children together. Francesco (Frank) was very proud to be
                    American and was quite patriotic. He was a Barber by trade and a sign
                    painter, but it was the depression, so the family was not wealthy, but
                    they did alright considering the times.

                    Frank was renowned as a terrific gardener and grew squash and
                    zucchini that were 3 ft long! We have photos of him holding one of his
                    famous vegetables.

                    Frank had a reputation as a prankster. When he first opened his barber
                    shop in Mansfield, Mass., in the late 1920's, he would constantly tease
                    and joke with the old Italian men who came to hang out at the barber
                    shop. One story tells of how he would entertain the men with tales of
                    his fighting in the Risorgimento and as a Carbonari. He would tell
                    them before he served as a Sicilian patriot he was tall and strong. He
                    would say now, after years of fighting for Sicily, he was shrinking. He
                    would point to the ceiling fan and show how he could just reach the
                    pull cord. The next day he would come in early and shorten the cord.
                    He would tell another tale and then end with reaching for the pull cord.
                    The old men looked on in wonder as he could not reach the cord. Only
                    when they agreed he was shrinking would he burst out in laughter and
                    tell them the joke.

                    Frank died suddenly of heart failure when in his late 50's. His wife
                    Catherine moved to Attleboro to live with her daughter Paula and they
                    worked at Balfour Company in Attleboro, MA. When Joan was

                                              6
       divorced from her husband, she joined her mother and sister and they
       resided together. Catherine (Kay) died in 1973 of heart failure.

       Notes for Catherine Lillian Cartwright Lanergan:
       The 1930 census shows Catherine age 27, Frank age 43, son Frank Jr.
       (Buster) age 5, and son Randolph age 2 years 5 months living at 15
       Newton St., Mansfield, Mass. in his mother Francesca's home. Frank
       had a barber shop in town.

iii.   Carlo Eugenio LoDico, born 21 Mar 1888 in Marianopoli, Sicily; died
       12 Mar 1889 in Marianopoli, Sicily.

       Notes for Carlo Eugenio LoDico:
       Although there is no death record for Carlo, he does not appear in the
       marriage record of Ignazio & Francesca Paola in 1896. Also there is
       no side note in his birth certificate indicating he witnessed the wedding.
       Most likely he died around 1889.

iv.    Salvatrice (Sally) LoDico, born 14 Jan 1890 in Marianopoli, Sicily;
       died 1922 in Mansfield, Mass; married (1) Romeo Pianosi; born 09
       Feb 1885 in Fano, Italy; died 16 Aug 1946 in Mansfield, Mass.;
       married (2) Tomaso Guerro 30 Jun 1912 in Mansfield, Massachusetts;
       died 1916 in Massachusetts.

       Notes for Salvatrice (Sally) LoDico:
       In the San Prospero church records of Marianopoli, Sicily is the
       baptism of Salvatrice on page 302 #8 on 1/16/1890. The side note
       indicates her marriage to Tommaso Guerro in 1912 in Milford?
       [Mansfield] America.

       Their children were Curcio and Sylvio. Sylvio's wife was Althea.
       Salvatrice later married Romeo Pianeso and their child was Irma
       Pianeso. Irma married Guerrino Eusepi. Their children are Sally,
       Rosie, Joanne, Carla, and Linda.

       died Apr 1980 in Mansfield, Mass; married Aristodemo Albertini; born
       23 Dec 1891 in Sano Ferrato, Italy; died 23 May 1952 in Mansfield,
       Mass..

       Notes for Angela (Angelina) LoDico:
       Angelina married Aristodemo (Rooster) Albertini. Their children are

                                  7
      Rena, Aurora, Eleanor, and Alfred.

      Angelina emigrated from Marianopoli to Mansfield and went to work
      in Mansfield's chocolate factory the first week she arrived. She made
      $4 a week wages.

      My grandfather Ignazio was famous for writing passion plays in
      Mansfield in the early years of living in Mansfield [1910-1920].
      Angelina performed in these passion plays. The entire family played
      instruments, danced and sang and continued to entertain in Mansfield
      as they had done in Marianopoli, Sicily.

      My earliest memories of Angelina was from 1956 and attending 1st
      grade. I would have to walk past her home and many times I would be
      ushered inside to have lunch. My Aunt Angelina spoke little English,
      yet I somehow understood enough of what she said. Her house was
      always filled with the smells of Sicilian twist bread and homemade
      pasta. It seemed she was always cooking, making breads and pastas, yet
      she lived alone.

      died Jul 1963 in Mass; married Maria Selvaggio 09 Jun 1935 in
      Quincy, Mass.

      Notes for Carmelo (Charlie) LoDico:
      In the San Prospero church records of Marianopoli, Sicily, the baptism
      of Carmelo is recorded on page 83 #37 3/20/1895 with the side note on
      6/9/1935 Carmelo married Maria Selvaggio {Mary Savage} in St. John
      Rectory in Quincy, Mass.

      They had no children. Carmelo and Mary ran a beauty shop on
      Germain Ave., in Quincy in the 1930s. Carmelo was a barber and Mary
      was a hairdresser. In the 1940s their beauty shop was on 21 Granite St.

      My dad's favorite story to tell about his brother Charlie (who was 4'10)
      was having to come home after school as a teenage to violin lessons.
      Charlie, the older brother would demand that my father go upstair and
      practice. One day after Charlie left the house, my father stopped
      practicing and was checking out his brother's clothes in the closet. He
      tried on one of his dress shirts and discovered he couldn't button the
      collar. When Charlie came home and found his brother not practicing

                                8
             he threatened him as usual. My dad stood up to him and said his days
             playing the violin were over. Charlie looked at him, up and down, then
             agreed.

             Notes for Prospero Giuseppe (Joseph) Moaria LoDico:
             My uncle Joseph was born on August 19th in Marianopoli, Sicily. The
             patron saint of Marianopoli is San Prospero. The feast of San Prospero
             is celebrated in mid August. Most likely, children born on or close to
             this time of year are named in honor of San Prospero.

             Joseph owned a meat store / market in Sharon, Mass. When he retired
             he moved first to Worcester, Mass., and then to Florida.

             The 1930 census shows Joseph, age 29, living at 310 Summer St.,
             Stoughton, Mass with his wife Rose, age 28 and children: Elaine 8,

             two older sisters. Both sisters had married two Faiella brothers. My

Notes for Rodolfo Calimero Pietro Antonio Carmino Faiella:
My Uncle Rodolfo (Rudy) Faiella was a professional wrestler in the
1920s. He was known as 'The Whirlwind'. The stories told by his
brother Americo and sons Alfred and Luigi spoke of a man of great
strength. Once he got a grip on his opponent, it was all over.

As young men, Americo and Rodolfo would travel from town to town
giving wrestling demonstrations and challenging the Italian men to
matches for money. Rodolfo rarely lost.

As one story goes, while standing in a railroad yard, Rodolfo and
Americo were discussing a possible match with a group of men.
Rodolfo looked down at a cast iron train rail and said he could lift it
completely off the ground all by himself.

Everyone looked at the rail. It was a massive ' I ' beam about 30 feet
long. A few men tried to lift up one end and could barely get it a few
inches off the ground. The bets were placed.

Rodolfo grabbed one end and hoisted over his shoulder. He walked
down the rail to the center and lifted it off the ground in one quick
move.

                    Notes for Alfred Albano Guido LoDico:
                    My father's nickname was 'Bed'. Many of his closest friends, even most
                    of our relatives thought it was given to him because of his fondness to
                    sleep in late in the morning after spending all night out.

                    The truth is, his mother Francesca used to call for him by yelling
                    "Beddu". Beddu is the Sicilian word for handsome. His friends picked
                    up on the name and the nickname stuck.

    60         ii.   Francesco Paolo LoDico, born 14 Dec 1832 in Blufi -Petralia Soprana,

                     Marianopoli, Sicily.

                     Notes for Luciano LoDico:
                     Luciano listed his occupations, with each child, as follows: campiere
                     (armed field guard) (1870 & 1880); mounted soldier (1873- 1878);
                     mounted guard (1882); mounted soldier (1887); soldier (1880); and
                     finally a 'soprastante' (overseer) (1892).

                     A 'soprastante' was charged, by the land-owner or lease-holder, to take
                     charge of the management of an estate. The soprastante', as a rule,
                     were strong men and were recruited for this post, from those who were
                     able to 'make themselves respected -- inspire fear -- among the people
                     of the estates, as well as outsiders. Most overseers were men of
                     confidence (uomo di fiducia) of the 'gabelloto' lease-owner. He dealt
                     with the peasants set to work on the estates and took care of the general
                     protection of the enterprise. He was usually assisted by an armed
                     campiere on horseback, who watched over the fields, crops, and
                     animals.

                     Like the overseer, a campiere (armed field guard) had a reputation for
                     toughness, which they advertised by their arrogant airs and their

                                               15
                     carrying of arms. The ways in which some of them dressed, moved
                     around, and squinted, symbolized toughness. Their reticence and the
                     opaque ambiguity of phrases, gestures, and mimic signs they used
                     among their peers set them apart from ordinary people.

                     Those these strong arm men were, at times, strikingly polite and
                     cordial, their general behavior and outfit expressed a capacity and
                     willingness to coerce with physical violence. The campiere constituted a
                     kind of private police force which, in the absence of an efficient formal
                     control apparatus, claimed to maintain law and order in the
                     countryside.

Notes for Cristofaro LoDico:
The story of the LoDico ancestry begins in Malpasso and is tied to one of the most
ancient roads in Sicily.. By the end of the 17th century there was still one road that went
from the coastal town of Catania, inland through the Madonie mountains to the north
coastal town of Palermo. This roadway was one of the very first roads in Sicily and was
used by the first of the island's inhabitants: the Sicans, Sicels, and Elymians. In its
earliest times the towns of Centuripe and Agyrium brought an exchange of goods
arriving by sea with ceramics and obsidian brought out from inland. This road was later
improved by the Romans and it passed through Blufi in a region called Malpasso [ bad
pass ]. This was a dangerous stretch of road known for its steep ravines and high bluffs
where criminals and others would attack and rob the travelers. The priests, pilgrims, and
merchants complained to the Sicilian nobility and asked for protection. The Marchese
Pottino who owned many large estates of land and farms around Rusuttano and Blufi,
including the ancestral Castello Irosa, entered into an agreement with three Sicilian
campiere families: the LaTonas, the di Geracis, and the LoDicos. In return for protecting
the travelers on the road, the LoDico family was given the land known as Malpasso.
